My wife and daughter did the dolphin swim and were completely satisfied with the experience, then took in the snorkling and was completely amazed at the amount of fish and colourful fauna in the area. This was my first time snorkling in the ocean and was impressed. if not on a cruise ship find out when they are in port and choose a different day, or choose later in day as they have to reboard the ships early for departure

The area the dolphins are kept are part of the open water. All dolphins have been born in captivity. The area of dolphin interaction was large and natural.

My daughter is a huge dolphin fan so when we heard about this place, and our cruise ship was stopping there, we thought we would try it. We were very impressed. She totally enjoyed the hands on experience. She got to ride the dolphin, have it push her while riding a wake board and more....
The park has other attractions too. We tried the snorkeling and it was okay. Would not have gone out of my way for just the snorkeling.

We were staying for a week in Cozumel and were surprised how many cruise ships come in daily and figured Chankanaab would be crowded over Easter break. We easily found out which day only had one cruise ship coming in and then the seven of us arrived at noon. We did the last Royal Dolphin Swim of the day at 3:30 and had two dolphins to ourselves! We have been wanting to do this for years and so glad we waited to do it here. What a beautiful natural setting and the trainers are passionate about education and the care of the animals. A beautiful experience for all of us. The pics are pricey, but worth it to capture the experience. We split the cost of the disc between two families and have all pictures to share.

Seal lion show is included and very nice as well.

The beach is gorgeous and no problem getting a palapa later in the day.
